Building a greenhouse is in the list on the sidebar. We have moved that on a bit today as Focus have an 8x6 aluminium framed greenhouse on offer. Not one to follow the instructions in the packet, the Fen husband (FH) has decided to modify it somewhat and erect it as a 16x5 structure against a garage wall as a lean-to type. The extra dimensions will be achieved with the addition of some wooden constructions, and we hope it will be ready within a week or two.

The thought I had was that the FH would build a Dutch-light type greenhouse, but on pricing the glass, we found that it was going to cost in the region of £150 for that alone, never mind the wood. The Focus one was £149, and we should end up with a much larger greenhouse than we had anticipated.
